Meet Laura

I have always had a love of animals and grew up with dogs, cats, fish, and even a pony. My pet sitting experience began as a teenager when I would care for our neighbor's cat while they were away on vacation. In my 20's, I worked at a veterinary hospital and would pet/house sit on occasion for some of our clients. I began a career with the USPS in 1987, but continued my pet sitting on the side. I was promoted to Postmaster of a small town and on my lunch hour began regularly walking/exercising some of my working customer's dogs. Word spread and I would often do pet care and pet/house sitting duties for others in town and in the surrounding area. I retired from the post office with 20 years of service and worked part-time on a special needs school bus. With a flexible schedule and summers off, I was still able to do pet care. After six years on the bus, I decided to pursue my love of animals on a full-time basis. My family includes a husband and 2 adult sons, 3 labs, 2 cats, 4 parrots, and a small flock of chickens. I have also owned dairy goats in the past. I am honest, dependable, kind, and detail oriented. I am skilled in feeding, medicating, exercising, walking, swimming, grooming, and the overall care of animals. I will shower your pets with love and attention and treat them as if they were my own.

Laura was amazing! She took detailed notes about each of our pets and the care they needed, and she sent us daily updates and photos while we were away. Laura went above and beyond the call of duty in caring for our pets, we are so grateful we found her. We will be hiring her every time we go on vacation!
